...down on Bourbon St., etc etc.
I haven't listened to all this show, but was pleasantly surprised by what I did hear - Cumberland, Easy Wind (with Pig on harp) and Good Lovin' are all pretty hot. The Other One suite is really something special - do take this one in! Shame about High Time and Charlie being sliced and cut, but for 1970 you gets what you gets. Farewell, TC!
Subject: open up & let the grooves in...it's a great one, folks!
The Dead were busted down on Bourbon Street later this evening. The opening of the now fabled Warehouse in New Orleans. What a night it must've been! Before it all got heavy with the pigs later & the sound was voodooed the next night delivering a spontaneous acoustic set, but that's another story. Back story aside, this is definitely one of the more underrated and hidden gems from 1970 on the archives & stands up to some of the best in the era. The performances of Black Peter, China Cat/Rider, High Time are just "there". High Time is super atmospheric. You could cut it with a knife. Easy Wind is best ever material. There's no more appropriate place for this caliber of an Easy Wind than good old south Louisiana. Add a top shelf, smoking '70 Other One with an excellent segue into Cosmic Charlie that ends in a painful cut, but hey what a ride. Jerry's leads are razor sharp and on. This is in fact TC's last show. He is muddled at times, but there are moments when he shines (China Cat, High Times). Worth checking out. A false start on Cumberland sparks almost immediately into a fiery haze. This gig was definitely an apt opening for the Warehouse, a venue that hosted many classic shows over the next twelve years. 1970-1982.
Subject: TC's last show
This is definitely TC's last show - although he is buried you can hear him if you listen closely. There was a meeting before the show where it was decided he'd leave. He did the gig and was rooming with Pig when the bust went down that night. They both escaped arrest. (McNally pg. 352)
I'm not a huge fan of this era but its a decent show and obviously historically interesting. The Fleetwood Mac set also circulates and is awesome.
Subject: TC's Last Show
I think TC's last show was actually on 01/26/70- Honolulu Civic Auditorium, Honolulu, HI.. though no tape of the final two shows of the Honolulu run existst on the Archive... (It may exist in tape circles or on Etreee, I dunnno).. here's the link to the last taped one of the run on the archive with TC: http://www.archive.org/details/gd70-01-24.sbd.kaplan.7890.sbeok.shnf
It's one of the excellent Honolulu run shows. This one's a great one too, even if it isn't recorded as good as SBD whores want it to be.
according to youtube theres a long acoustic set from this night? wheres it at? maybe im wrong... never claim to be right about much...
lemon lime partridge -
Subject: way better than 3.5 stars!
nice black peter, perfect high time & a righteous easy wind...sound is also great. i feel like this show is getting a bad rap...i'll give it five stars just on the high time.
Subject: Tom's Last show
Tom Constanten's last show...then the band got busted. Thanx for the support Tom. I wonder if he showed up to bail 'em out.
The Cosmic cut hurts...
Great other one and solid rest of the show - but ntg exceptional for the period
